Fall event for GRI Grad suspended

As members know, Illinois REALTORS® is constantly evaluating its programs to ensure they provide the best use of of resources for its members. While the GRI Grad live program traditionally held in the Fall has its loyal attendees, the event has ultimately not proven sustainable. The Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to suspend the GRI Grad live course tentatively scheduled for later this Fall. Those who have registered will be issued refunds for this program.

Grads will continue to enjoy the professional benefits that come from earning this designation. Illinois REALTORS® is looking forward to the future and will continue exploring new resources for GRI Grads and all members.
